At the request of the State of Nevada, a radiation survey was initiated in the Beatty, Nevada, area on March 10, 1976, to identify and locate radioactive materials which might have been removed from the Nuclear Engineering Company low-level radioactive waste burial site located near Beatty. Approximately 280 locations including dwellings, storehouses, schools, saloons, hotels, motels, businesses, ranches, and mines were inspected. Seventeen residences in Beatty and the surrounding area were identified where the sole radioactive items found were radium-dial clocks, compasses, and instrument gauges which had been distributed from the burial site. An additional 25 locations were identified where other radioactive items originating from the Beatty site were found. Radiation exposures to persons possessing the various radioactive materials appear to have been generally and fortuitously minimal.
